Audiology grad students treat schoolkids to hands-on learning and fun

audiology field trip

Audiology grad students had the opportunity to get out and have some fun with third-to-eighth grade Champaign County school students at the Fighting Illini Field Trip Day. The day was set aside so area children could come explore what we do at UIUC through hands-on-learning fun before being treated to a women’s basketball game.

The first-year audiology graduate students orchestrated games to introduce our kids to the parts of the ear, including “What sounds are too loud?”, how our ears get damaged and what we can do to protect our hearing. It was a fun-filled day for all!
